    Lyrics

    Living on Government hand-outs
    Water in the milk from a hole in the roof
    Where the rain comes through
    What can you do? You can't move

    You got tears from your little sister
    Crying 'cause she don't have a dress
    Without a patch in for the party to go
    Aw, but you know she'll get by 'cause she's

    Living in the love of the common people
    Smiles through the heart of the family man
    Poppa's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Momma's gonna love you just
    As much as she can and she can

    It's a good think you don't have bus fares
    They would fall through a hold in you pocket
    And you'd lose 'em in the snow on the ground
    You gotta walk into town to get a job

    Trying to keep yourself warm
    But the hole in your shoe lets the snow comes through
    And chills you to the bone
    So you better go home where it's warm and you can

    Living in the love of the common people
    Smiles through the heart of the family man
    Poppa's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Momma's gonna love you just
    As much as she can and she can

    Living on dreams ain't easy
